Lenovo and HP are among the many Microsoft partners that have announced new Windows devices at this year’s Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.
Lenovo debuted its ideapad MIIX 300 – an eight-inch tablet running Windows 8.1, which comes with a free one-year subscription to Microsoft Office.
Powered by an Intel Atom processor, the tablet has an IPS WUXGA screen, up to 64GB of internal eMMC storage, a microSD card reader for transferring media, wi-fi and bluetooth, dual cameras and long battery life.
HP, meanwhile, launched a 13.3-inch convertible PC – the Spectre x360.
The ultra-thin PC weighs in at 3.3 pounds and can transition between modes – from notebook to tent to tablet mode – thanks to its innovative hinges that contain a set of three spiral gears for synchronised and precise movement.
In addition to its high-resolution touch display, Intel Core i5 and i7-powered processors and 12.5 hours battery life, the HP Spectre x360 includes a full-sized 1.5 millimetre travel keyboard and a wide glass touchpad for improved day-to-day usability.
The Lenovo ideapad MIIX 300 will go on sale in July, costing from US$149. The HP Spectre x360 is already available to buy in the US with prices starting at US$899.99.
